Working for jail inmates’ welfare
Jhajjar: The Image Management Professionals Association (IMPA), Delhi Chapter, has taken an initiative to bring about a gradual and positive change in the lives of prisoners in the district jail at Dulina village in this district. The IMPA consultants have started counselling the prisoners on their strength and weakness, besides channelising their energy in a positive direction, says Anshu Gupta, President of the IMPA, Delhi.
The IMPA recently organised a workshop in the jail to boost the inmates’ confidence and help them reconstruct their life after their release . Justice Gurmit Singh Sandhawalia who visited the jail on the occasion said: “Prison itself is a tremendous education about the need for patience and perseverance.” Ameeta Nehra, Secretary of IMPA Delhi, underscored the importance of a positive attitude, progressive approach and a balanced mind. “IMPA aims at adding value to the life of prisoners,” Ameeta added.
Memorial to martyred Captain Pawan
Jind: Captain Pawan Kumar’s family and Badhana village panchayat has made it clear that if the state government wants to establish an educational institute in the martyr’s memory, it should be set up at the Captain’s ancestral village of Badhana in Jind district . The martyr’s family desires that the government should open either a medical college or a Sainik School in the village, 17 km from Jind.
The martyr’s father, Rajbir, said: “The village panchayat has passed a resolution to give 100 acres or more for the medical institute.” The martyr’s uncle, Subhash Kumar, said:“As the government is getting 100 acres free of cost at Badhana village, the government must utilise it for a medical institute instead of purchasing land for the purpose at another place”. Members of the 60-member committee formed to pursue the case met Governor Kaptan Singh Solanki here on March 21, requesting him to ask the government to set up the proposed institute in the martyr’s village. Capt Pawan Kumar (23), the only son of government teachers Rajbir and Kamlesh Rani, sacrificed his life fighting terrorists in the Pampore area of Jammu and Kashmir on February 21.
